When I was a little kid playing this at the local Mall, I dreamt of having one in my house one day. My buddy was nice enough to help me restore this original Star Wars arcade machine to it’s original 1983 condition for my newborn son Jax. The insides and monitor are completely restored, but upon delivery the frame cracked. Even though the artworks and exterior condition was decent it wasn't perfect. So I ordered all new reproduction artwork, powder coating, bondo, wood filler and she will be perfect! Maybe another week and she be be as 1983 new. I will post more pictures as it gets closer to being finished.

Very cool project ...

When Obi-Wan said "Let go", Was I only one that actually let go of the stick (expecting my X-wing to pilot itself). biggrin.gif:D

Awesome game! I spent a lot of money on this one! What I want to know is where did you get or how did you make your carbonite Han Solo??? That thing looks sweet!

JEALOUS!

We have an original Donkey Kong and Ms Pacman at my family's bowling alley that I am itching to bring home and restore...
